And finally, how I know I've become one of "those" parents: "Playhouse Disney", the Disney Channel's preschool program that runs each morning, became "Disney Junior" yesterday, and I was excited about it. Yes, this is the kind of event that gets me charged up and tickles my toes... not the latest Twilight movie or a weekend sale at Macy's, but the premiere of Disney Junior to the Disney Channel. And believe me, it's a big deal around this house, because my whole morning's schedule falls around Disney show times. (Every morning, when Charity wakes up, she says "Mickey!" and expects to watch her show).
Most exciting about this new Disney Junior is the arrival of an all new show, "Jake and the Neverland Pirates", featuring Captain Hook himself and his band of swashbuckling pirates. And it's arrival couldn't have been more timely, as Silas is becoming our own little Peter Pan with his Neverland-themed nursery, and Charity has recently been exposed to this charming tale as well. Sadly, I can already sing along with the show's theme song... (one of those parents). But I love that they are incorporating a Disney classic into a kids' TV show. I mean, how cute is this?
Yes, I'm THAT mom. If it makes my kids happy, I'm happy. It's the simple things that delight a parent, really.
